With Chelsea boss Frank Lampard believed to be interested in signing a new goalkeeper, the Blues have mostly been linked with Ajax shotstopper Andre Onana.
Onana seems to have played his final game for the Dutch giants after their league season was cancelled, and he claims he has an agreement with Ajax that he will be allowed to leave Amsterdam if their price tag – believed to be around £25million – is met.
Ajax boss Erik Ten Hag has now confirmed that the club has an agreement with Onana to let him leave.
“Andre is very important to us and of course we don’t want to lose him,” the Ajax boss told Algemeen Dagblad.
“But it’s true that we have an agreement from last year about the development scenario and what steps we will take if the right club comes in at the right price.’
Speaking about his decision to leave Ajax at the end of the season, Onana told Fox Sports: “It was five great years here. But now my time has come to take a step.
“We made that appointment last year. I don’t know yet what will happen, but my ambitions and agreements are clear.”
Onana is believed to be on his way to Chelsea ahead of next season, with Frank Lampard having grown tired of Kepa Arrizabalaga.
